List of the best Van Halen songs, ranked by fans like you. Van Halen was the ultimate party in the '70s and '80s. With Eddie Van Halen reinventing the notion of guitar heroics, David Lee Roth playing the role of lead singer, and eventually Sammy Hagar bringing in his ear for pop hooks, the band was always a soundtrack to a good time (even when they were at each other's throats behind the scenes.)This list covers the band's party heydey from Roth era classics like "Unchained" and "Panama" to Hagar's pop hits "When It's Love" and "Right Now." If you feel like we've left one of Eddie's most iconic solos left out or undervalued the Hagar years, redo this list till good times are had by all.
